Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
I can start the motor by rolling it off but the engine doesn't run right and the mileage window flashes. I have checked the battery and it is good. What could be the problem?

SOURCE: How do I replace a
To take off the fender strut covers. Remove the rear turn signals, then the other bolt about 8" before the turn signal mounts. If you have a jack, it is fairly straight-forward.
You have to remove the upper shock bolts, then a strut mounting bolt, then a long bolt which mounts the rear signal.Jack the bike up so the rear tire is just ready to lose contact with the ground. Remove upper shock bolts. Jack bike up further so the rear signals are above the tire. As always, secure your bike when using a jack.Look at the underside of the fender and you will see a bracket on each side of the inner fender surface. The torx head mounting bolt threads into this bracket. Remove this bolt.Use tape to secure the strut cover before you remove these bolts.Looking underneath again, you will see the hex head of the long signal mounting bolt. Remove this bolt. You need to unplug the signal wire harnesses from the housing under the brake light lens. Feed the wiring from its retainers under the fender, then through the struts. The strut covers should now be free.-------- You do have to remove the tank to get the old fork cover off (pull the headlight wire through the cover). OR you can slide the old fork cover up, so you don't need to remove the tank. Two screws on each side, one screw on the back of the left, two screws on the back of the right. They fall right off. If the headlight connections are getting blocked, then tank has to be removed, as headlight connections are under tank. There's a quick connect/disconnect under the tank... just pull the front tank bolt and loosen the rear screw... then reach up under the tank and pull the connection apart.---------- Remove front wheel, front fender,top fork cap and loosen lower triple clamp bolts under head light cover, forks are now out!
Remove 6mm bolt at the bottom of the fork leg and drain oil,remove dust seal and wire clip, now remove the upper fork nut (the spring will jump out ).Pull the leg and tube away from each other, the old seal will stay on the tube.Get a long 6mm allen socket 1/2" drive - you will need it to remove the allen screw at the bottom of the fork. An air ratchet works the best.You will have to remove the forks off of the triple tree completely in order to put back on the upper fork cover.--------------- This should help.Keep updated.thanks.Helpmech.

It sounds to me that you have excessive pressure in the crankcase possible from a broken ring or a cracked piston.
